Abstract

Intussusception is the most common intestinal obstruction among infants and young children. Most of the pediatric cases are ileocecal. Isolated small bowel intussusception accounts for fewer than 10% of all pediatric cases. We reported a previously healthy 3-year-old child who presented with multiple ileo-ileal intussusceptions. Preoperatively, diagnosis made by ultrasonography. During surgery, edematous and dilated small bowel loops with four intussusceptions were found. Ileocecal junction was normal. Our experience shows that the rare entity of multiple intussusceptions with no obviously causative agent may present in pediatric patients.
